Intense aromas of peach, apricots, citrus, and slight floral notes hidden in the back. Quite saline & sour upfront with decent flavors of white fruits that persist up to the moderate length finish. Some minerality and a touch of fizzyness. Ok on its own but was made grander with Goat Curry, a qpr pairing for Indian food.

Surprisingly, this one is still drinking after 7 years. Semi-sweet, but not off-putting... this is a bottle I kept around for our guests who know me too well, and ask for a white that's "not too dry". At this age, it's a simple wine, some light acidity, and no overt aromas. Likely a crowd pleaser, and inexpensive as well.

Proche d'un riesling d'Alsace
Fruits arômes et légèrement de sucre résiduel. À boire sans retenue a se petit prix.
